Description

THIS IS A 1949 INDIAN THREE WHEELED SERVICE CART PROTOTYPE. THIS BIKE WAS A PROJECT BETWEEN INDIAN AND THE LOWTHER SCOOTER COMPANY. I WAS TOLD THAT LOWTHER SHIPPED THE MOTOR TO THE INDIAN FACTORY IN SPRINGFIELD MASS. AND IT WAS ASSEMBLED THERE. THEY WERE WORKING ON FINDING A NEW LINE OF PRODUCTS TO MARKET TO THE AMERICAN PUBLIC AFTER WORLD WAR II. THIS ONE HERE IS ONE OF 8 MADE. MAKING IT "EXTREMELY" RARE AND HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER. IT WILL START RIGHT UP ON THE FIRST OR SECOND KICK EVERY TIME. I BOUGHT IT FROM A COLLECTOR WHO USED IT ON HIS HORSE FARM. HE WROTE A DESCRIPTION OF WHAT THIS BIKE IS AND THE HISTORY OF IT AND YOU CAN READ IT IN ONE OF THE PICTURES THAT I HAVE POSTED ON HERE. THE SEAT WAS RE-UPOLSTERED AND THE SPARK PLUG WIRE WAS REPLACED WITH A PERIOD CORRECT ONE. LEAVING EVERYTHING ELSE ON THIS MACHINE COMPLETELY ORIGINAL. IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN CARED FOR WELL AND DRIVES GOOD THROUGH ALL THREE GEARS AND THE LIGHTS WORK. THIS MACHINE IS OVER 65 YEARS OLD AND IS NOT PERFECT. THERE IS SOME PAINT FADING. A FEW SCRATCHES AND DINGS AND SOME WIRES OR CABLES ARE SHOWING THEIR AGE. I TOOK SEVERAL PICTURES TO SHOW IT AGE AND CONDITION. THIS IS A PROTOTYPE ( 1 OF ONLY 8 MADE ) AND IT NEVER CAME WITH A TITLE. YOU CAN TRACE THE V. I. N. NUMBER FROM LOWTHER. ( VERY LOW 1298). IT IS THE MORE DESIRABLE MODEL 63D. THE HIGHEST HORSE POWER MOTOR THAT THEY OFFERED. PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION THAT THE BIKE CAME WITH IN THE PICTURES I HAVE POSTED AND THAT WILL EXPLAIN MORE. BUYER WILL PAY ANY AND ALL SHIPPING COSTS. BUT I WILL ASSIST IN ANY WAY I CAN TO MAKE SURE IT SAFELY MAKES IT TO IT'S NEW HOME. SERIOUS BIDDERS ONLY. I WILL ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU HAVE. BID WITH CONFIDENCE AS YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE BIDDING ON A ULTRA RARE GEM FROM MY COLLECTION?€¦THANKS AND GOOD LUCK?€¦.
